The l'.rj'i political season begins to lake definite form with the formal an nouncement by Lieut. Gov. Abram W. Foote that he will be a candidate to succeed Governor Hartness, and a state ment -credited to Judge Weeks, also of Addison county, that he will not seek the governorship. Thi means that Ad dUou ha- decided to present a united front to the rest of the state. Mr. I'oote presents a skeleton plat form pronouncing ag'i'nint any bond is sue for highway work, promising that there will be no 1 tax rate and express ing certainty that the present direct tax can be reduced. He does not at this time, how ever, oll'er any spoeiHeat ions as to how he is t.i bring about reduction' in state expenses. Ihe public will ex pect a more detailed explanation of this iii due season, as well as of th other planks of his platform. It now remains to be seen what op position, if any, the lieutenant governor will have. It may be that he will have the very distinguished honor of receiv ing the nomination without ail opponent, but on the whole this seems somewhat doubtful. While Foote has his friends,! aml.no enemies in the personal sense.! nevertheless there are those who feel that in the situation the state might be j better served by a man of wider and bi'j;-j ger experience. Only the future will answer whether this feeling will crystal i.e ii.to an avowed candidacy. Mr. Finite 's definite announcement' mav not serve Mo hasten developments' materially. It still is early and plenty of time remains for candidates to come into ihe field. The Foote .candidacy has long been accepted as a certainty audi therefore the announcement has Wen discounted in advance by those who might be considering entering the prim-1 aries. ' Also. Mr. 1'oot.e probably will' not be much more active in the future' than in the pa-t, and it remains to be. seen wueiner ne sailers me oisauvani ages commonly ascribed to a loiig can didacy. The Vermont Governorship. (Ilarre Times.) 'The somewhat complicated situation politically in Addison county was cleared by the self-elimination of John K. Weeks from possible contest for the governorship of Vermont, leaving but one aspirant for that office in Addison county, the present lieutenant-governor. Two gubernatorial candidates from a single county, and such a small county as Addison, would have meant the de- feat of both. Whether there was agree ment or not between Messrs. Foote jind Weeks regarding the withdrawal of the latter from any possibility ot running is not a matter of public knowledge; but it is certain that Addison count v by seeming unanimity bus bettered its chaiices for securing the governorship bv the announcement ly one of the men that be is not a candidate. However, it is almost certain that there will l, other apiraMts in the t'udd before long and that there will W a lively contest for the llepubliean nomination. Lieut Cov. I'oote places his record before the voters of Vermont as his argument in hi behalf; and it must be admitted bv all that it is an honorable record. Hut before coming to a decision in their own mind, the people of the state will be in clined to wait until the final entry is made. . . What They Need. ( Fitcbbnrg Sentinel.) The American J'.ar association has re commended that future members shall be required to have at least two years of college education, but if the bar is to be purified it will be ueeessarv for mem bers to have a knowledge of the 10 eom iiiai'dnier;t and the will to obey them.

When the party of three, which in cluded two collciie professors, entered the hunting uiniii in the Maine woods, their attention was attracted to the un usual po-.it ion of the stove.

The other professor was of the opinion that the stove was elevated to b- a!xve the window in order that cool and pnra air could be had at nubt. The ho-t. Jieing of pnict ieaj turn, thought that the stove was set high in order that a good supply of green woM could be placed beneath it to dry. j After considerable argument they called the iMiide and asked why tlie stove was in such a position. j "Well." he said, "when I brought the stove ti, the river lost most of the; stovepipe overboard, and we hail to set' the stove up there so as to have the oilie rem-h ll.i-r.il. ill llii i,..f ' Wrt.- I side Tales.

'This life's a thing of .shade, that once was fair and. sunny. iThe way .they einch an old fat bard is something fierce and bitter; there is no sense in work ing hard far better be a quitter. The burdens thrifty men -endure call out for language ranty ; true, wisdom lies jn being poor, and living in a shanty." A beggar stopped me in my tracks: in niy kind heart he trusted: Ijsaid. "I've paid my income tax, and, like yourself, I'm busted." The pastor asked me for a bone to help to paint the steeple; I said. "My taxes uiiikv me groan. I walk with ruined people." My wife .declares the frieuds she meets smile at the lid she's wearing; I show her then my tax" receipts, and shed some tears despairing. The village live wires come and say tiiey need .same coin for boosting: I sigh, "My roubles are today with tax collectors roosting." This is the way the voter feels when modern law's bereft him : with zealous care he hoards the wheels the1 tax collector left him. Hut in'a -while he looks and sees what other lands are doing, marks how tlie foreign voter llees.'with taxes still pursuing; he blushes for his discontent, for tears that he let trickle, and gives the beggarman a cent, the clergyman a nickel. Copyright by George The Meddle?' "If the coat fits you, put it on." The Meddler notes with approval (and takes with a grain of salt! the state ment of Chairman Hiehniond that "there has never been any expectation" on th' part of the selectmen that legal action would be necessary to bring about a set tlement with the Connecticut Kiver Lower Co., for damages done by the ice jam of Hr'0. However, let that phase of the situation go. The important fact at present is the apparent willingness of Ixdh selectmen and power company clheials to compose their differeti'fs without recourse to law. If both sides are sincere, which means that each in tends to deal fairly with the other, tjie likelihood of litigation is sufficiently re mote so that nobody need worry about it: It's net surprising that there was ;.n increase in the towns highway expense the past year. IJoad commissioner's orders totalled .51,-U-".G1 as compared to !? 17,20 1.0 the previous year, but as the commissioner points out, several of the items in "this year's total might fairly be charged to other department.-). Fur thermore, it was "some year" in more senses than one. The early spring of 1021 resulted in heavy automobile and truck traffic at a time when the roads particularly thoroughfares like those to I'utney and Vernon were least able to stand it and the result was an excep tionally high maintenance cost. Then there was the succession of cloudbursts that wrought havoc last summer. These things were evident enough at the time, but they are apt to be forgotten in con sideration of such hard ami dry things as "figures. Among the items in the highway ac count is one of .t'.021.02 for oiling, which includes the cost of "S.0o." gal lons of road oil applied outside the vil lage and 13.000 gallons applied - w ithin. The Meddler not only believes this was a, justifiable expense but is convinced that it will prove a sound investment I im-.iv fmihiT nnidicat ions of oil are made the coming season. With the ' ,,hvio us that everything possible must to keep our highway surfaces . . .. . wnere tiiey ociong. n;ii:ici, on iii; Midl ways and thus far no preservative agent equal to oil has been found. More over, if oiling is not done every stason the accumulative effect of this form of treatment is lost. The Meddler sincerely hopes there is nothing to the rumor that fl.e town authorities are considering a discontinuance of the oil treatment which they started last summer. ' In connection with the request of the free library trustees that an appropria tion of JjCCiMr be, voted for the coming yiar it is interesting to note tin; increas ing use to which the library is being put by townspeople in general. Over 1I.(MMI more lnioks were taken out during the past year than in the year previous, the circulation per capita being nearly 1. Faced on one side with the increased cost of maintenance and ou the other with the increased cost of books and their more rapid deterioration through larger use. the library management finds it t'lactically impossible to add the vol umes that are necessary to the useful ness of the institution, to say nstl.ing of purchasing others which ought to be had for the sake ot the convenience oi pa,- (t rons! This combination ot circum stances appears to be sufficient justilica tion for the request for more money. YYOl LI) CUT SIZE OF 1101 SL. Drastic Reapportionment Kill Introduce Increases Salaries.
